I removed my master cyl to paint it and I drained every bit of fluid out of it that I could. Should I bench bleed to before I re- install it in the car?

Thanks guys, I thought so. Now all I have to do is figure out how to bleed it and not ruin my paint job I figure I will screw in the two short brake lines and put a clear hose on the end of them and bleed it. Then carefully install the master cyl in the car and protect the car from any dripping fluid. Shouldn't be to bad.

You will definately want those glasses when you are bleeding your brakes. I was bleeding the brakes one time on my wife's car. Got brake fluid in my eye...It burns like a BIG DOG!!

Yea, try to keep that brake fluid away from your paint too!

Take care,
